Welcome to Texas
Officer Cruz was very understanding. My first experience with Austin PD was very positive. And Adam's plane was late so we were there when he got to baggage claim. As things go it was pretty painless, although Bob's beloved WRX has a nasty mangled bumper. And Bob loves his little WRX, so this is sad, although thanks to the wonders of insurance this should be temporary.
The guy who bumped us was...odd. When we pulled over, he pulled over on the other side of the road and never looked at us or asked if we were all right. Bob ran across the road and asked him if he was all right and he said yes. And that was it. For the next twenty minutes he ignored us. The police talked to him, and they talked to us. They had him fill out a form and had us fill out a form. Then they brought us his form and took ours over to him. Of course, if I'd hit someone's car, I'd be mortified, but that, I realize, is not everyone's reaction. Or maybe it was his. Maybe he was so completely mortified he couldn't speak to us.
We are almost completely unpacked. I'm down to less than a dozen boxes. This means I'll be able to start writing again, now in my new, pretty office.
